At 23 years old I was working as a cook at a seafood restaurant and making $9 an hour. I had no college degree and no experience working with technology.
I taught myself web development using free internet resources and built a new career for myself.
By age 26 I was making $38 an hour as a web developer at a major media company.
By age 30 I was working from home full-time as a web application architect.
I am not presenting this story to brag. This story, and this site, is about showing you how you can build a career as a web developer and drastically change your life and career.
Since I started my web development career I have been able to purchase a home, earn my Bachelors and Masters degrees, and travel extensively. All of those experiences were because of my choice to build a career as a web developer.
I sincerely believe the career path I chose can work for many other people, and I hope this site helps them achieve their goals.
